About the Book

Grace + her dad, Davy = Team Gravy. No way is a new stepmom going to break up this team. . . .

Filled with reverse Parent Trap-like pranks, The Stepmom Shake-Up is a hilarious and heartfelt look at what it means to be a family.


Grace + Dad = the perfect team

After Grace's mom died, she and her dad grew extra close. They have special nicknames and are always busy with new projects--like building a puppy condo for their dog, Potus--and they love learning random facts about the US presidents. Grace thinks her little family of two is perfect.

Then some committee members at church suggest it's time for Dad to start dating again. And Dad agrees! Grace knows that adding a new member to the team will end in disaster.

No problem! She and her best friend have a plan:
Operation: Stepmom Shake-Up

But what if a little shake-up is exactly what Grace's family needs?
